Wedding bells card (for Exploring Cricut)

Our challenge at Exploring Cricut is to do a wedding project using black and white with a touch of another color.  I made a wedding card to have in the stash, as we don't have any upcoming weddings this summer.  I'm not good under deadlines at coming up with card ideas, so I'm glad to have one in ready to go (I have to have plenty of time to let my ideas sort of gel….)!  I used the CM Divine Wedding cartridge for my wedding bells, but any bells would substitute if you don't have that cartridge.  My card has lots of layers-I put the wedding bells on the oblong shapes from Elegant Edges and used two different embossing folders to add visual interest to the white mats.  I think I could customize this design using one of a couple's wedding colors in place of the pink.  Of course, gold or silver would look pretty awesome too.  I may be making more than one of these, lol!
